More than a year ago, Macon-Bibb government announced a new fire station for East Bibb County. Neighbors said the news was long overdue. But today there is no fire house in East Bibb. Now people living there and the legislators representing them are wondering why.
The 509 steam engine train sits in Macon's Central City Park as it has for decades. The Georgia State Railroad Museum in Savannah is negotiating with Macon-Bibb to bring her east. But Macon park leaders are torn by the prospect of losing the train.
